Rhome volunteer fire fighters and Wise County medics worked fast to free three injured people trapped inside a pickup after it wrecked near the intersection of US 287 and Texas 114 West at 9 tonight. The southbound truck lost control on the road slick with rain and oil, veered across an on ramp and rolled onto the median where it rested on its side, said Rhome police officer Chance Garrett. Driver Doug Acklie, 46, of Paradise, was transported to Harris Methodist in Fort Worth. Passengers Kathy Acklie, 42, and Taylor Ackie, 20, were both transported to Wise Regional.
